BBQ and summer smoking

By Richard on May, 15th 2008 - 12:28 pm

I must let you in on a secret of mine. At the moment with this current warm weather, I get so excited from the middle of the week at the thought of Saturday's cooking extravaganza. The entire event is kicked off with the ritual marinating of the meat on the Friday eve. Be it a classic BBQ sauce or a spicy oriental ginger based rub or a yougurty Indian Tikka, it is always done with a large glass of Pacharan (Spanish aperitif drink) and a Ramon Allones Small Club Corona. This 30 min smoke, corresponds exactly to the time required to do this part of the preparatory cooking phase. Come Saturday morning, chill the wine, spark up the BBQ and fire up an El Rey del Mundo Choix Supreme and let the games begin. I usually have a number of friends over for these occasions, which allows me to get people tasting different smokes. The current pack favorite for BBQ meals is without doubt the Montecristo Edmundo. All you aroma you could wish for in a big ring gauge cigar that lasts. Tell me about your BBQ and cigar experiences or why not submit your favorite BBQ story or recipe.

Cigar Magazines

Here at TopCubans.com, we are firm believers in growing and developing through experience. The journey of discovery and understanding exactly what smoke suits your palate when and with what combination of food, drink and environment is a long and challenging one. Your apprenticeship naturally starts close to home, with number one. This personal trial phase is a must, but can be narrow as you are bound by your own limited experience. Next, you will meet people, be it in your cigar club or in your regular smoking areas, who will push you into the direction of 'good things'. This sharing of experiences will open new doors and will be a major step in educating your palate to the diversity of aromas and body. From here, the normal next step will be to look to the leaders of the profession or recognized experts to give you that special experience. This is where the world of the written word can be a shoulder to lean on. Leading cigar magazines like Cigar Aficionado, Smoke Magazine, European Cigar Cult Journal, L'Amateur de Cigare, Club Cigares, Pipes and Tobaccos or Tobacco Asia are an excellent way to get immediate expert feedback on smokes that interest you, as well as discovering new 'out of the ordinary' treats. Open yourself to as much exposure as you can, as this wealth of experience will only assist you in your personal journey.
